Douchebag Of The Day: Scott “She’s WHITE!” Brownon September 25, 2012 at 8:27 pm
Awarded for Scott BROWN’s (ironic, isn’t it?) continued assault on Elizabeth Warren’s race. Warren’s mother is part Cherokee and Brown insists that she used this to get special consideration in her education and employment. So far, no one has provided a smidgen of proof that this is the case but that hasn’t stopped Brown from playing on white resentment that a minority might have benefited in a country drowning in white privilege.
What makes this so awful is Brown’s demand that Warren can’t possibly be part Native American because, just look at her! She’s WHITE! This was his tactic during their first debate:
“Professor Warren claimed she was a Native American, a person of color and as you can see, she is not…she checked the box claiming to be Native American and clearly she is not.”
Ah. She’s not Native American because she doesn’t LOOK Native American.
Sen. Brown, allow me to introduce you to Principal Chief Bill John Baker, current elected leader of the Cherokee Nation:
Notice anything? Like the fact that he’s as white as it gets? He’s the leader of the entire Cherokee Nation. Apparently his color is not an issue.
Brown represents the pervasive shallowness of the conservative movement. They are so hung up on trivial and superficial details, they can’t form a coherent platform. Or sentence.
For being so pathetic that you have to rely on racism to defeat a white woman, Congratulations, Scott Brown! You’re a douchebag!!
